I was reading Robinson Crusoe last week, the main characters philosophy on money is this.

The good things of this world are only good while they are useful to us. Whatever treasures we pile up, we cab enjoy only as much as we can use, and no more.

A drawer full of diamonds would have been just as useless. But how I wished I could give it all, just for a pipe,or a few English vegetable seeds or a bottle of ink.
